According to costume designer Penny Rose, everyone had a customized costume in keeping with their background: "We based it on the culture and what the shapes should be - everyone's in a kimono - but we've thrown a kind of fashion twist at it and we've made it full of colour." See more »
First of all, I want to say this movie is enjoyable. When I see Japanese movies in general, I feel bored because they are totally dark, and quiet like a funeral. This movie have a really great VFX, like Shogun's castle, but they should have contained more action scene. It is not enough that there are only a few Katana (sward) fight. It is fun to watch, but not definitely twice. I saw it in Japanese, and it was just a horrible voice action except Keanu's one. Even though they shoot this movie in English, Japanese actors did voice act in their parts by themselves in Japanese. However, it was really sucks because I felt they did not fit in the movie and some are mistaken translation. I felt like they did not act on voice, they just say on the lines. Anyway, I wanted to see more action scene. The last part of this movie is so great (I cannot say how or why because its spoil the movie) with you may have some sympathy. Anyway, I liked the movie.
